iPhone 4 wins “world’s thinnest smartphone” rights against Samsung

Quick-fire question: What's the thinnest smartphone on the market? If you said the Samsung Galaxy S II then you should probably immediately write a check to Apple, since Samsung has just been smacked down in the UK over suggestions that it, not its rival, produced the most waifish smartphone. The Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) sided with Apple amid the company's complaints that Samsung wasn't measuring the thickest point on the Galaxy S II in its comparisons.

Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

DROID BIONIC Review

DROID BIONIC Review

Smartphone users are a demanding lot. Give them the latest version of Android, big displays and 4G LTE connectivity, and they ask for a dual-core processor as well. Until now it's been too much to ask of Verizon, but all that changed with the arrival of the much-anticipated DROID BIONIC by Motorola this week. Announced back at CES in January and then variously updated and delayed since, Verizon promises that this is the fastest 4G phone around. Is this finally the LTE Android to satisfy speed-freaks? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Samsung Galaxy S II gets Asphalt 6 HD top-class racing game download FREE

Starting this week, all you users holding a Samsung Galaxy S II (only the international I9100 or the Korean version, mind you,) may download a special edition WCG 2011 version of one of the greatest racing games to have been released in the history of the world* thus far, Gameloft's Asphalt 6: ADRENALINE HD. *Of course this is your narrator's own opinion, but the ability to rock forth with wicked beautiful auto machines at hyper-fast speeds, crashing into your opponents to take them out of the race as you go, is certainly a force to be reckoned with.

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

Samsung’s Gavin Kim Makes Clear Stance on webOS, Confirms Galaxy S II Release Limits

This week at Samsung's Galaxy S II announcement event in New York City, Vice President of Samsung's Consumer & Enterprise Services Gavin Kim spoke briefly with SlashGear on a couple of rather relevant subjects: Samsung's future with webOS (or lack thereof) and the future of the Galaxy S II in the USA. Having a keen sense of what the press and the public might have a wild heyday with as far as official statements go, Kim refrained from making any breaking fact drops or, as I might call it, Electropolitical gaffes. Instead Kim reinforced our already strong faith in the Samsung Telecommunications brand by noting that it was the market that decided where Samsung would make its next set of moves.

Samsung Galaxy Note vs Tab 7.7 vs Galaxy S II

Samsung Galaxy Note vs Tab 7.7 vs Galaxy S II

This week at IFA 2011 in Berlin we've been given the opportunity have quite a few hands-on looks at products from a handful of vendors, but it's the Samsung stand that's got us most interested as their newest line of products are so very comparable to one another. This week revealed to us two brand new devices, that being the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 and the Samsung Galaxy Note, the former being the next tablet device in the Galaxy Tab line, the latter being what Samsung is describing as the perfect half-way point between smartphone and tablet. Then there's the Samsung Galaxy S II as it exists on the international market right this second. How do they all compare?

Samsung Galaxy S II USA Launch Upgrades Rundown [Video]

We have Samsung's Vice President of Consumer & Enterprise Services Gavin Kim to thank for the full rundown of the Samsung Galaxy S II's full new features rundown, all of it presented by him on his very own Galaxy S II device through its MHL (Mobile High-definition Link) port made capable of sending out a mirrored-display through a normal, everyday HDMI cable. You may remember the same functionality from the Infuse 4G, a device which was in many ways the herald of the Samsung Galaxy S II as it's officially announced today. What Kim has for us on stage in NYC at the GSII big reveal event is a look at everything you should expect from the three announced devices today as they compare to the original GSII released a few months ago internationally.

Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T Hands-On [Video]

Samsung Galaxy S II for AT&T Hands-On [Video]

The second of three declared versions of the internationally popular Samsung dual-core Android device, the Galaxy S II from AT&T, is set to be the only one of three to have the original 4.3-inch display. Now why, you might ask, would they do such a thing? I think the answer may be staring you right in the face with its own fantastically cute face: that's my daughter under the puzzle piece lockscreen of the AT&T Infuse 4G, a device not unlike the Galaxy S II that came out quite a few weeks ago with the same 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display you're now seeing on the WiMAX and T-Mobile versions of the Galaxy S II. What AT&T has done here is to give you a choice of devices, both of them with Super AMOLED Plus displays, but one with a larger display and a smaller processor, the other with a smaller display and a larger processor. Choices!
